AGM 2011

RSC Belgium held it 2011 Annual General Meeting on the evening of 14 January at Le Crabe Fantome Restaurant in Brussels. The activities of the section in 2010 were reviewed and plans for 2011 - the International Year of Chemistry - described. The AGM was followed by the section's Annual Dinner.

The highlights of 2010 for the section were described by section Secretary Ian Carson and section's healthy financial position was outlined by David Terrell. David is stepping down as Treasurer after six years in the job - the maximum allowed under section rules. Rita Woodward will become section Treasurer for 2011.

Section chairman Bob Crichton thanked David for his dedicated service and achievements in keeping the section's funds in excellent shape while our activities have changed and grown substantially over the past few years.

Bob also praised the section committee, members and friends of the section for their continued support for section activities. In particular he highlighted Rita's award at the RSC's General Assembly in November and also the way the section reacted to the Greenlight for Girls opportunity.



The meeting was also a chance for a first outing for the section's new 'pop-up' stand that had been delivered on the morning of the AGM to Newsletter editor Tim Reynolds. The stand was the backdrop for a presentation of a 'gold' RSC pin badge to our newest committee member John Swift by Chairman Bob Crichton (see above). The badge marks 40 years of RSC membership for John.
